There are three patches that are meant to fix the bugs with radio. On the tests
I did here, they worked, but the Bongani still points that the fixes didn't
solve for him.

On the tests I did here, the three patches seemed to work [1]. Maybe you could
test with those patches and post us some results.

There are three patches meant to fix several issues caused by the conversion:;a=commitdiff;h=bdd38d9b5c6365ea004df6d8a183dd1344b4801f;a=commitdiff;h=055a6282cabd311cf010a5a83f0494558504f7d0;a=commitdiff;h=6e07ff78274752fe812a1e8bddb6013a278e62e8

Could you test please and give us some feedback?

[1] Yet, I've discovered recently that the hardware I use for testing PCI
devices is broken. Probably, my motherboard chipset is damaged, since I'm
getting intermittent bugs on several parts of the machine - even with stable
kernels - so my tests with bttv aren't conclusive.
